Paris St-Germain celebrated their third successive Ligue 1 trophy at home in front of their fans after beating Reims 3-2 on the final day of the season.

Having won the title at Montpellier last week, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was rested at Parcs des Princes, but two Edinson Cavani goals secured PSG's 24th league win of the season.

Monaco beat Marseille and St Etienne to the third Champions League spot behind second-placed Lyon with a 1-0 win over Lorient. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco scored in the 20th minute for Monaco.

Marseille beat Bastia 3-0 while St Etienne triumphed over Guingamp 2-1 but they will have to settle for places in the Europa League.

Cavani opened the scoring for PSG following Marco Verratti's pass before Adrien Rabiot extended the hosts' lead.

Aissa Mandi's header brought Reims closer to their rivals but another Cavani strike, his 27th of the season, ensured that Grejohn Kyei's late goal was nothing more than a consolation.

PSG are bidding to win a domestic treble having already claimed the French League Cup. They face Auxerre in the Coupe de France final on 30 May.
